    Orange Jam

    i grew up in a house full of home made jams, my mother used to make  jams of each season fruit, and to be honest i never liked Orange jam, i used to find it too bitter, lately i started to really enjoy it, only when i realized that bitterness can be controlled to adjust anyone's taste by the amount of orange peels you add to the jam. my recipe requires mixing 2 types of oranges which will lead to a very balanced taste, its not too sweet nor bitter plus it has a citrusy flavor. i took a picture the 2 types of oranges i used just to make…

    Embakbka ( libyan pasta soup )

    clearly from the  name it is Italian Cuisine related! i think ( just a personal opinion based on some of the history info i know about my beloved coutry)  that we got the pasta dishes inspiration from italians back when they were here, we added the libyan touch and twist it to become pure libyan dish that belongs to Libya. there are many dishes like this in italy with different ingredients, simply a pasta cooked in the sauce instead of cooking each apart then mix,BUT libyans made it their own way, using libyan spices and i must say this is a VERY VERY popular dish all over the country, its…

    Panettone

    i dont even know how to start or where to begin?, i cant explain how happy and proud i am to finally get to make a great panettone at home, i lost counting of how many times i tested panettone recipes and kept failing to reach a perfect balance of softness like a brioche but its more likely to be a bread, the airy fluffy texture AHHH !!!! just for the past 2 weeks i tried 4 different recipes, and i can tell my last one was the ” almost there ” recipe but still i didnt like how it was not fluffy and started to crumble and dries so…

    Salted Caramel Thumbnail Cookies

    salted caramel, i have been seeing it in so many bloggers recipes, cakes, tarts, cookies and you name it but i have to admit this is the first recipe for me to use it, the combination between the sugar in caramel and salt flakes is surprisingly delicious, like seriously the salt is doing that kick for all the flavors to pop, its sweet and salty at the same time with vanilla flavor, just soo worth it. so basically it’s thumbnail cookie style, and as usual best way to get all cookies same size is by using ice-cream scooper, specially that i decided to make these cookies a bit bigger than…

    Pumpkin Lamb stew ( eid Stew )

    i grew up having this dish every Eid, i had it made by my Grandmother then my Aunt, its connected to Eid for me, like it will not taste the same if we make it in any regular day. this is a traditional dish that is special for the east side cities, i personally think it has been influenced by Andalusian coz of the raisins use with chickpeas and lamb, its something close to the Moroccan which is also influenced by the same area. recipe Ingredients: ¼ cup vegetable oil 6 tbsp tomato paste 1 tbsp shaiba 1 tsp salt 1 tsp turmeric 1 tsp mixed spices 1 cup chickpeas,…
